Restaurant: Cafe Birdie
Location: 5631 N Figueroa St. (Highland Park)
Type of restaurant: Mediterranean/American
We stipulated: For date night, Maria and I were planning on another Highland Park restaurant -- but it was packed. Instead, we walked by Cafe Birdie, and decided to check it out.
They stipulated: Walk-in traffic is accepted, and don't forget to check out the hidden bar in the back.
High point: The cauliflower was pretty amazing, and the fall margarita was a great idea.
Overall impression: Nice spot, and yet another welcome addition to the ever-growing restaurant options near us. I never eat fried chicken coating... but I couldn't resist it here!
Will we return: Definitely, especially to check out that secret bar in the back.
